3 Nights at Mara House Luxor – Accommodation + Tours.  Our clients are discerning, independent travellers wanting guaranteed unique, quality experiences.  We are not really what budget travellers are looking for.   We will show you Luxor over 3 days – bookable anytime of the year .  Tour the best Luxor sites and savour our authentic home cooked food.

Mara House is NOT ON THE TOURIST strip, nor on the Nile.  We are in a normal, ordinary Egyptian street, among the locals, behind the train station.  Despite our best efforts the streets are dirty and a western person could be forgiven for thinking we are in a poor area.  We are not.  It is simply that Egyptians do not have the same priorities we do when it comes to what is outside the front door.  If you want to see what it is like among the locals then Mara House is for you.  If you prefer the usual 5 star hotel surroundings in the street then you need go to the tourist strip.  Having said that – with our Luxor package you are not going to spend time wandering the streets anyway :-).

When I built Mara House I choose not to be in the tourist strip and among the souvenir shops.  I choose my street as a place where tourists could get a feel for Egypt as it is today and an opportunity to understand a different culture.

This package will save you hours of research, keep you out of tourist traps, give you the company of great guides and is a good balance between activity and relaxation.  You will be well taken care of and we will ensure that your hours with us flow as smoothly and surely as the river Nile.


  • 3 nights accommodation at Mara House – your own private, apartment-size suite consisting of bedroom, sitting-room and bathroom.  If you are more than 2 persons or a family you will have a suite containing 2 or 3 bedrooms (sleeping up to 6), bathroom and dining area as well as extraordinarily large sized sitting room.
  • 3 breakfasts
  • Tour to West Bank, Tour to Karnak & Luxor Temples, Tour to Abydos and Dendera Temples
  • The full Salahadeen Feast.
  • An hour sailing the Nile around sunset.
  • A calesh ride (horse and carriage) around the town.
  • FREE High speed wi-fi (some hotels charge as much as €30 per hour for wi-fi)
  • Transfer to the airport, train station or your Cruise Boat on departure.
  • Extra nights are at a reduced rate
  • When possible we allow early check-in and late-check out with no extra charges.

    June 28 to July 1, 2017.
    Mara House and Ahmed made me feel very welcome. It’s a beautifully appointed hotel (more like someone’s home) and from the moment you are greeted at the door by Ahmed and his colleague Amr (I spelled his name incorrectly…my apologies) you feel welcome and safe.

    Ahmed helped me in small ways (eg. got me toothpaste) and in more complicated ways eg. he lined up for 40 minutes at the train station to buy my train tickets to and from Cairo and Alexandria. He didn’t have to; I didn’t ask him to; but he volunteered to it which shows the quality of the man and level of customer care of Mara House.

    My guide, Mohamed, was exceptional in his knowledge and willingness to share his country’s history and culture. The drivers I had were good. No problems at all.

    I never did meet Mara, but my interactions with her via the Internet were always exceptionally professional.

    If I was to ever return to Luxor I would not hesitate to use Mara House again…

    This was my first trip to Egypt and I was a little unsure what to expect. Mara House couldn’t have been a more perfect choice! The location in Luxor is fantastic – just a few minutes to the Nile, the temples, and the markets. The hotel is beautiful, with an open sitting area, large formal dining room, and large suites with a small in-suite kitchen and mini bar.

    The staff are fantastic – honestly, the best group of people I’ve ever worked with through all my travels. The hotel manager, Ahmed, is warm and accommodating; every detail is worked and runs like clockwork. He is there if you need anything. The guide for Mara House – Mo – is so knowledgeable about both modern and antiquities Egypt and answered every question I had. He provides information about each one of the stops on the tour, so you get more than just snapshots on your trip. All of the drivers for Mara House are fantastic and will get you anywhere you want to go.

    The itinerary Mara House has worked for the “3 Day Luxor Package” is perfect. You see enough sites without feeling rushed or overwhelmed. And with Mo’s help, you’ll understand the significance of each stop in the itinerary.

    Overall, an incredible experience from start to finish. I would absolutely recommend Mara House to anyone, whether it’s your first trip to Egypt or your 20th.

    Thank you to Mara and the staff at Mara House!

    Well we are back from our trip in April and sort of settled down.
    Fantastic trip organised by the Mara House team in Cairo and Luxor. Australian family of 4 with 2 boys under 12. Fantastic tours in Cairo and Luxor.
    We toured in April and were kept fully up to date and directions for pick ups from airports and how to get through them as well.
    Mara House was fantastic. My wife was eyeing off the furniture. Great location and great staff. Tour guides were fantastic, Fatima made our Cairo trip excellent.
    Thanks guys it was the best trip we have ever done and would like to come back sooner rather than later. Cannot recommend Mara Tours enough.
